Subject: Dancing in the Street
This "Dancing" is a dirty, nasty molestation of raunchy guitar. Jerry pushes it deep and hard. I feel violated in a good way. Very loose and juicy feel to this one. 5 pink stars.

Subject: Tip top stuff
Any of the glowing reviews for the previous show are applicable to this one.
Check out Hard to Handle & Mason's.
Lights out, kids.

This was my first Dead show. Sitting on the floor of the Tea Party about 15' from the stage w/ maybe a couple hundred others. "Play St. Stephen!" I yelled. And they did.

Damn these shows fuckin rock!

"The Mason's Children" chapter of the Dead has got to me one of, if not, my all time favorite.

Heavy, ranchy, great!

And to the dude below me...I'm pretty sure you have this show confused with the 31st.

Peace

Subject: revised first set order
I think the order of this concert is wrong; I recently came into a copy of the first set of this concert and the order goes

China Cat-> I know you rider-> banter-> Mama tried-> banter -> next time you see me -> cold rain and snow->Black Peter -> Hard to Handle -> Me and my uncle -> Mason's Children -> Dire Wolf-> and Uncle Johns band concludes the set.

I really like the versions of next time, masons, hard to handle and the early workings out of Dire wolf. Jerry: "I want you all to sing along"
I think thats the proper order of the first set though my tape does switch sides after me and my uncle, but it runs coherently.

Subject: priceless banter
Good show, energy building up towards New Years, good jam on Easy Wind, best Black Peter of the year, great HtH. But the banter is truly priceless... check out the end of the first two or three tracks. "Bobby is buzzing!" "There's nothing to see up here, it's only us! Holy f**k!"

This appears to be a complete(?) version of the show. The Taping Compendium lists a shorter, incomplete version. Quality rates a B+/A- to these ears. Somewhat muddy, little hiss. There's a small room ambience to the recordings from this run that give you the feeling you are there. Well worth a listen.
